Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Representative Text

1 Come, weary souls, by sin oppressed,
On Christ the Son believe,
And He will give you peace and rest;
Salvation you’ll receive.

Refrain:
"Come unto Me," the Savior cries,
"And I will give you rest.
The soul that on My grace relies
Shall be with comfort blest."

2 He’s borne your load of sin and guilt,
Your debt He’s kindly paid;
His precious blood He freely spilt,
A full atonement made. [Refrain]

3 His yoke receive with humble heart,
And bear it with delight;
Rest, peace and joy He will impart,
He’ll make your burden light. [Refrain]
